Iritable Bowel Syndrome
Were you looking for information about Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Iritable bowel syndrome is a common misspelling of irritable bowel syndrome.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a condition that can cause crampy abdominal (stomach) pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. Although it cannot be cured, symptoms can be reduced by taking medications, changing your diet, or reducing stress. This condition can affect anyone of any age; however, women are two to three times more affected by IBS than men. Because IBS shares similar symptoms with other conditions, a healthcare provider will first rule out other conditions before diagnosing IBS.
